Everybody dies.Do you think one should prepare for surviving his/her spouse in advance?
I think everyone who is married needs to plan for the unknown. Death is a part of life and it is a road that eventually, we will all take. Financially, every married couple should have life insurance especially, if you have children. Being prepared saves you more heartache and worry in the long run...
